JOIN US AT NPCA GATHERING IN WASHINGTON, D.C., THIS SEPTEMBER

JOIN US AT THE NATIONAL PEACE CORPS ASSOCIATION GATHERING IN WASHINGTON, D.C., THIS SEPTEMBER

.

PCIA will be well represented on the program at “Peace Corps Connect,” the NPCA’s annual gathering in Washington, D.C., September 21-25, 2016.

.

  • John Krauskopf will report on his recent trip to Iran as part of the Friday luncheon which will focus on NPCA’s Next Steps Travel program.  A group of 16 RPCVs toured Iran for two weeks in May.

  • Kendall Dudley will lead a panel on a presentation entitled “Beyond the Stigma of Iran:  How Finding Patterns in Culture Helps Replace Anger with Curiosity and Empathy.  Four themes will be explored:  1) walls and veils; 2) food, tea, and time; 3) folk beliefs and the color blue; and 4) the paradoxical New Year Holiday, Noruz.

.

In addition, six members of the PCIA Board of Directors plan to be in attendance.  This will provide an excellent opportunity to meet, greet, and share suggestions to make PCIA a better organization.
